In December 2021 I tweeted a 24-day calendar of 8x8 pixel fonts.
While many were original designs that made it into my ZX Origins some were not suitable for inclusion as they were either conversions or heavily based-upon existing bitmap fonts.
Those fonts needed a home so they are presented here.
- Gattars Fork
- Distant Tears
- Statement (withdrawn)
- Tartan Adventure
- Capcom Fighter
- Shadow of the Beast
- A Night in Tokyo
- Pristine Decay
- Legend of Zelda
- Skid Row
A version of @stepickford's font from his awesome ZX Spectrum game FEUD extended to include lowercase letters!
Also included are the original upper-case only and smaller lower-case variants.
Amiga day! This pack contains three fonts - the original Kickstart 1 version of Topaz 8, the revised more rounded Kickstart 2 version plus the Amiga OS 3 thin system font! All look great!
A fun and quirky font converted from the challenging 1987 split-screen text adventure The Gordello Incident by Tom D Frost via Tartan Software (screenshot 1).
Capcom Fighter! A monochrome conversion of the Final Fight arcade font from Capcom (shot #3) - variants were also used in some of the Street Fighter series.
Spectrum ports used a much worse font!
A font conversion from classic Amiga platform game Shadow of the Beast II extended with lower-case adapted from my Fatality font.
I also did a Beast 2 logo font a while back
To a whole generation pixels can mean only one thing...
A decade ago working at Xbox I played with colleagues late into the night.
Now my kids play it daily.
Perhaps you adventured as the Hero of Hyrule with a Magical Princess!
Legend of Zelda on the GB made quite the impression to me and it's popular with kids today (my daughter loves the manga too)
A tribute to the late @RochBalrog - The Balrog of Zenobi Software - who wrote & published many great text adventures.❤️
This font is a blend of a few different old-style fonts he used in his games.
